We specialise in books and other resources on women’s health issues, pregnancy and childbirth, fertility issues, midwifery, breastfeeding, parenting, and grief and loss. We also provide educational seminars and conferences for health professionals, primarily midwives, lactation consultants and childbirth educators.
CAPERS Bookstore was established in 1988. We launched our website in March 2001 and we have also had shopfronts in various locations over the years. Since January 2008 our office has been based in Melbourne and we are currently only mail-order and online.
CAPERS Bookstore is run by Jan and Sarah Cornfoot. Jan started the business in 1988 after many years of volunteer work with local, national and international consumer advocacy and support groups since the birth of her first child in 1975.
CAPERS provides quality resources that assist women and families in making informed choices in their pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting. We also provide a selection of textbooks and educational events for midwives, lactation consultants and other health professionals, and teaching resources for childbirth and parenting education. CAPERS also sells gifts, novels and biographies of interest to midwives and other health professionals. Finally, our CAPERS for Children section includes special gifts and books for children, and particularly books for children on pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding, and grief and loss.
We are selective in the items that we sell and take pride in our knowledge of our products. We are always happy to help with further information or suggestions – just call the office Monday to Friday or email us from the Contact Us page at anytime.
